Then The Rain Came

I haven’t written any poetry for what seems to be months! It has been a difficult and busy time in my life, but dealing with that in the right way has opened new avenues of creativity…so I hope anyone who reads this will enjoy it!

All the hands were turning,

The wrong way for some

As summer whispered her cruel secret.

Most can’t see

The leaves will fall this year,

Still green,

And the oppressive sky

Will squeeze the secrets out of all of us.

Then the rain will come;

I must learned that saying goodbye 

Is not just for other men…

And I fear I will cry God’s tears that day.

    Glad you could find time to write poems again 🙂
    Enjoyed reading this poem ; especially the lines
    ‘And the oppressive sky
    Will squeeze the secrets out of all of us.’

      Thank you Umesh. Special people are worth the time. A small sacrifice to honour a beautiful person who will not be around in the not too distant future! Thanks again

    Intense with a gentle touch. I sense the letting go is a long process and felt sorrow when the trees lost their leaves that were still too green to fall. *hug* This is beautiful

    Very touching — I wish I could help you bear the sadness — I wish the loss could be undone. Be well, friend.
